Louis van Gaal could take the Netherlands into the knockout stages of a World Cup for the second time in his storied career later today.

The hosts have already been eliminated and surely represent little danger to the Netherlands, such has been the level of their performance thus far.
Indeed, this will almost certainly be their final World Cup game for many years to come.
Here’s where to it.
Netherlands vs Qatar Preview
The Netherlands and Qatar will face each other in the group A match in the World Cup football popularly known as The Greatest Show on Earth. The two teams are going to face each other in their last match in the group stage.
The Netherlands is already top of the group with four points from a win and a draw in their first two matches. On the other hand, Qatar, who came to play as the host of the tournament, has already confirmed their departure from the tournament after losing their first two matches. The last match is therefore a battle for the top of the group for the Netherlands. On the other hand, Qatar will try to get victory in the regulation match.
The journey was not easy for the Netherlands in their two matches in the group stage with a star-studded team. They had to be content with a hard-earned win against Senegal and a draw against Ecuador. In the last match of the group stage, the Netherlands will try to increase their confidence by playing against Qatar, a relatively easy opponent.
Netherlands, ranked 8th in FIFA, will face off against Qatar, ranked 50th. Undoubtedly, it is going to be a tough test for Qatar.

The prospect was heard at the start of the World Cup, but it did not reflect in Qatar’s game. Netherlands are clear favorites in this match considering the statistics and recent form.
